I set reminders in my phone. “ market “. For both Wednesday and Saturday markets.
I go on wednesdays because it's a lot less busy than Saturday's and then you don't have to leave the house Saturday. Win-win.
First thing in the morning on my Saturday.......grab a coffee and walk around, seeing familiar faces and getting some treats for the week ~ love the market!
the Saturday Market is my favourite way to start off the weekend, support local and get some healthy delicious food for the week! The atmosphere is always so fun and upbeat especially with local musical talent. I also love the seasonal food selection to change up my weekly shopping.
I find the Saturday morning market has more vendors, more variety but you have to get their early for the selection because if you do not you are out of luck. I am a morning person so I do not mind getting up early. The Wednesday the selection is limited, so you would have to return on Saturday if you wanted to get the rest of your purchases.
I go to the market when I’m hungry. I go to the grocery store when I’m full 😍
I personally like doing my weekly market shopping. I can get most what I want. I do go on Saturdays as well for more or for items I wasn't able to get my needs.
First thing we go to the market on Saturdays before the kids lessons start for the say! ( and have breakfast!)
We go on Wednesday, early. Fits into our retirement lifestyle better than early Saturday morning! Get to chat within the vendors more too on Wednesdays! Love face to face time with the person who grew it, made it, baked it...love it!
I am supposed to have a routine? I have trouble knowing when it is Wednesday or Saturday on any given week--the issue is being retired; I don't have to know what day it is except when the doctor is checking for dementia. So really, it is Facebook that let's me know when it is market day....thank god for social media!
I try to make it to the market at least once a week...if I miss on Saturday, I definitely make it on Wednesday...
I go once a week.... make a grocery list, make sure I have my market bags and cash... preorder from Veg e Tate, and try to get there right at the start. Also make a plan to pick up either supper or soup for lunch the next day! Also go to the market at TBRHSC and Saturday if convenient! I absolutely love the market and refuse to buy anything at a store that I can at the market! Keep it up! 😊👍 All the friendly vendors are a bonus as well!
The Wednesday market fits into my routine as it is open later and works around my work schedule better, plus it is not as busy as on Saturdays!
I work 2 weeks of nights so I try to pre-plan going during the 2 weeks I am off earlier and make a list of everything I need to stock up on 🙂
I love going to the market for fresh vegetables and eggs also you can’t beat the bagels, baking, perogies and most of taking my daughter and sharing in all the goodness .
I love the market . It’s a nice change from chain places , it has a lot of variety for different foods, home decor, everyday life etc. My fav is the hummus and pita chips from there and my kids loved the mini pancakes! It’s a great place for any age to go too! My kids have even played “market” with their play kitchen. I love the convenience of it being open twice a week 🙂
I make my healthy lifestyle a priority and love doing so while supporting the great people in our community.
I fit the market into my routine by ordering from superior seasons, then seeing the usual friendly vendors on Saturday’s. Love the wide variety of veggies that I can freeze for winter😊
I stop by the Wednesday market on my way home from work , love the fresh veggies, baking , dairy, coffee & more!
I like Wednesday market because it’s less busy than Saturday morning. If I’m working a day shift I go right after work. But if I’m working the evening shift I have to skip it.
Set my alert on my phone as a reminder and beat the traffic with an empty recycle bag in tow to fill with all the yummy 😋 goodies the market has to offer! 🍎 🥕 🥖 🍕 🍫 🥛 🥩 ☕️
Run there right after work and plan my Wed supper around Market finds! 😁
I plan it into my grocery shopping, go after running errands or even just go to treat myself! So many great vendors! 🙂
I make my grocery list based on what's seasonal at the market and then work in whatever else I can get at the market instead of the grocery stores. Market first.

A big Market welcome to Tami of The Little Pie Shop as our new upstairs vendor. She’s got Coconut and Banana cream pies and stacks of other pies like Apple Harvest Crisp. I’m sure that my piece of banana cream pie had no calories and was totally appropriate for breakfast due to the banana content, right?! Stop by to say hello to Tami twice each week. ...

Wednesday Winner! If Walkabout Farm milks an average of 75 sheep twice a day and each sheep gives an average of... then turn some into cheese... this feels too much like a math question! I think it stumped you all as well, since most of the guesses were in the 100s of litres, not 1000s. Congratulations to Julie Ann White with her guess of 4444 Ltrs. She was closest to the correct answer of 5250 Ltrs of sheep's milk turned into cheese. If you are curious about the taste of sheep's milk feta or gouda, pop into the Market to give it a try. The feta is my personal fave and rivals the supermarket ones anyday!
Open til 6:30 pm! ... See MoreSee Less
Liisa Go try this for me!
